Well we are heading on a little adventure next weekend to Snow Lake NM and since my sister and father are heading with us we will be keeping the 3rd row seat in, so alternative ways of storing some gear were being looked at. I finally decided to get a used enclosed carrier that was on craigslist for 20 bucks. I will have to make some custom mounts for the carrier but have a plan to make an easy mount tomorrow. I wanted to get the roofrack done but with kids feeling ill the opportunity didnt arise. I am hoping to get a little work done on the excursion before hitting the road if time permits.
